"The Hawaii county Civil Defense Agency (COH) has asked residents to stay indoors after the Kilauea volcano erupted following a series of earthquakes.

The eruption on the Big Island took place late Sunday night local time at the Halemaumau Crater, COH said. The Kilauea Volcano observatory raised the alert level to warning, an advisory said.

A glow was detected within the crater of the volcanos summit and "an eruption has commenced within Kilauea's summit caldera," the advisory said."
